And then tell him that ducks are wily, and you want to be there for him no matter what happens.
Tell him that the fact that you feel that way is what makes you know that you want to marry him. Enjoy where you are right now because your relationship is wonderful, things are good, and you won’t pass this way again.
I have told him that I don’t think we should wait, since I want to help support him as he pursues his dreams, not wait in the wings for them to come true.
I think he feels that he should have all his ducks in a row before we get hitched. I think getting married means that I can come with him while he goes after his education and dream career. I don’t want to pressure him, but I feel like a bit of an idiot just waiting around at this point. I feel so frustrated and lost, and as someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression my whole life, this feels like the ultimate gauntlet.
And then after you’ve had a long talk, realize you might need to wait a little longer.
